This is my little 13 week old White Swiss Shepherd, His name is Phoenix..
He is usually a bright, bubbly and bouncy little puppy, full of life but the past week has been absolute hell for us and if i could please just take a couple of minutes of your time to read his story I would appreciate it so much ❤️
Just last Wednesday Phoenix started to vomit non stop, I was really concerned so I took him to the vet, turns out he had eaten a sock and he had to get it removed, it was awful news - but it was fixable. I spent $4000 on his operation and care for 2 nights, He came home on Friday and the very next day i knew something was wrong he was yelping and screaming, it was so heartbreaking to see him that way, so I brought him in there again, I told them that something was wrong with him and that I could see he wasn't okay and they just pumped him with a pain injection without checking the problem. The next day he was acting very strangely, hiding in corners and in places around the house sitting in the same places and blankly staring around, not responding to his name. We know our own pups better than anyone so Monday I again took him in and told them he wasn't himself and to please check him out, again they did nothing. I was so worried about him I stayed up the entire night till 1 in the morning I got so scared for him I took him to a 24 hour animal hospital, they did a regular checkup but they were also concerned about him and quite annoyed he wasn't already given an x-ray and a blood test, they told me to take him into my regular vet in the morning and demand them to do it (as after hours are more than triple the price) so that's exactly what I did, brought him in again yesterday to my regular vet and they finally took an x-ray and just as I had thought he wasn't okay, the x-ray was very concerning. They sedated him and took a sample of fluid from his belly and it came out filthy, which meant his internal stitches weren't done properly, they had come undone and for days all the food and bacteria in his intestines had been seeping throughout his body. He was almost dead. They instantly operated and tried to flush out the massive amount of infection inside him, also double stitching the wound this time. As he awoke from surgery I took him right out of there and put him in the 24 hour animal hospital he had been at the night before, he's now with lovely attentive vets and nurses on antibiotics, drips and he's got lots of care. I have barely been able to afford his first 2 nights there on top of his first surgery and he needs at least a week In there to beat the infection, it costs $1400 a day and if i can't afford it, he will not survive I couldn't forgive myself if I didn't try everything I could to save him.
Anything at all would be so greatly appreciated and it would mean the absolute world Phoenix, thankyou so so much in advance ❤️
